Why Buy Used Acoustic Guitars?
The simple answer to the posted question is quite easy to answer; to save money. Preowned guitars are available from the lower-end beginner guitars to the high-end models from Taylor and Martin, amongst others. Read the related article to gain some insight into how used acoustic guitars can provide a good value. The percentage basis cost savings on an entry level model can be quite high due to the large inventory of them that is usually available in the second hand market, but the actual dollar savings may only be a hundred or so dollars becasue of their lower initial cost when purchased new. However, while the percentage savings on hiqh quality used acoustic guitars may not be that high on an instrument that originally sold for a thousand dollars or more, the actual savings on an absolute monetary basis could easily be several hundred bucks.
Generally speaking, guitar owners take pretty good care of their instruments and do not tend to beat them up. Sure, there may be some scratches and nicks from normal use but this certainly does not border on abuse. This is particularly true of owners of quality acoustic guitars that take proper, and sometimes excessive, care of them. Any flaws that may be associated with the particular guitar will almost always be in its' description and visible in the pictures. The eBay listings will provide all of the required details and even give you a rating for how trustworthy the seller has been.
